Water from the well.

By HarrietH
Netta brought to mind some old farm machinery in the north that I photographed last year. This is now used as a decoration and is not in use. It is curious to note that the name for this is, a "nora" which also means daughter-in-law.
I wonder if back in the "good old days" it was the daughter-in-law's duty to see to the water supply for the house.

Olive trees definitely. Olive oil is one of the main products of this region together with apples, wine, and chestnuts.
